The COVID-19 Community and Patient Education Toolkit is designed to give health education specialists in our hospital systems and community hospitals access to COVID-related materials for their communities and patients. The resources include flyers and posters on topics such as facts about COVID-19, symptoms, public health mitigation efforts, testing, and contact tracing. All resources are focused on a general population unless otherwise indicated. When available, we have included these materials in various languages. The information is organized into five sections:

For hospitals in New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County in search of community or COVID-19 testing locations or social services for their community members or patients, please visit GNYHA’s Health Information Tool for Empowerment (HITE), an online directory of over 5,700 free and low-cost health and social services.
